Vienna Second Night. Once again, AC/DC delivered an excellent concert. This time we decided to watch it from Stevie’s side, preferred spot to some of the hardcore the German fanbase who have been with us in many concerts before.

We arrived at the same time as the previous show but managed to get very close to the barriers. Being so close meant we couldn't see what was happening on the other side of the stage, very different from the Black Ice Tour in 2009 when we could even see our friends on the other side of the catwalk while Brian and Angus were going back and forth. Nice memories... The Vienna stadium was packed again, with people arriving later than on Wednesday. While the previous show started a bit early at 8:26 PM, this one started right on time, and what a show it was!

Angus Young delivered a killer performance from the first song to the last despite having one less day of rest. This was probably the best second show of all the dual concert cities so far in terms of band's performance (Seville, Munich, Dresden). Angus is now rock solid, consistent and always rocking at his best for the delight of the fans. The rythmic sections still delivers without any flaw. Stevie in particular is really getting in great shape and does an amazing job. 

Being on the left side of the stage, we had the privilege of closely observing Brian's activities during the concert. And what a performance by Brian! When he's under the spotlight, he gives 110%—energy, voice, screaming, and interacting with the audience, especially the fans in the first rows. He really makes the experience unique for everyone, from the first rows to the highest seats in the Ernst Happel Stadium. Voice is still amazing. Great frontman. Great professional.

When Brian is not under the spotlight, you can see him carefully getting his breathing back, drinking from his "magic power" bottle, talking to the sound tech, or making sure the ear monitor works well. During solos, he stands in front of the Marshall Amps, with his hat, in the typical Brian’s position. There were some minor problems during "Stiff Upper Lip," where he lost the cue a couple of times, but that’s the beauty of live music. Yesterday, we understood even better how much we missed Brian in the last years and in 2016 of course...

The crowd was fantastic! Very loud, especially during "Whole Lotta Rosie" and "T.N.T." The highlight of the night was "Shoot to Thrill," a song that always delivers live with the enthusiasm of fans. The audience’s energy was palpable, creating an electrifying atmosphere that resonated throughout the stadium. There were even a couple of crowdsurfing attempts (failed - the only succesful ones we saw this tour were in Seville 1).

We’re gearing up for the next stop in Zurich. Stay tuned for more updates from the road. Until then, keep rocking!
